Thinking about pulling the trigger on the Beyerdynamic DT 990, will this DAC/Amp be able to power the 600 ohm version? If I'm going to go all out, I may as well go all out.

sly_ducksI used this with my DT 990 250ohm version, and it wasn't much louder than my onboard sound on my asus Z97 Pro motherboard (which has mediocre onboard sound already), and my Logitech 5.1 speakers built in amp was even louder than this thing. I'd recommend another amp, no way this one was actually rated for 600 ohms if it hardly powered my 250ohms. That's just my experience though, don't take my advice 100%, I'm no expert either. Also, if you want DT 990's and don't NEED the flashy aesthetics of the Premiums, get the DT 990 Pro's like me on amazon for only like $170. I love them. They have the same driver and sound and all, just a coiled cable and simpler design. $70-$80, even on Massdrop sale, is not enough to convince me to pay for pure aesthetics...

jkteddy77I didn't realize the Premiums were the same as the Pros... I would much rather pay that absurdly large extra amount on performance rather than aesthetics in the form of a different headphone. I'll have to keep my eyes open for a better amp as well, thanks for your input.

sly_ducksI got DT880 600Ohms, and this thing barely powers them. It works good as a DAC, not much as an amp for high-ohm headphones (works great with my DT1350s).

D2501have you used a separate dac, because they turned down the internal dac so there wouldn't be interference.

sly_ducksThey aren't, the premiums are much more comfy due to less compression than the Pro. But, it's been 3 years what do you care? :)
